Conserving Natural and Cultural Resources During COVID-19
The word mara—meaning spotted in the Maasai language—describes the landscape of short, bushy trees dotting the Maasai Mara Reserve in western Kenya. While this region is marveled for its rich ecosystem and revered as the cradle of civilization, the way of life for inhabitants of the great Kenyan savanna is under threat from pressures including poaching, human-wildlife conflict, habitat degradation and loss, and now COVID-19.
Providing Education Through Remote Internet Hubs
Around 258 million, or one in five children worldwide are out of school according to a 2018 UNESCO report. The impacts of a life with little to no education are far-reaching and affect everything from nutrition to future employability. As low-income youth race toward a future of increased social stratification, access to education has never been more critically important to breaking the cycle of poverty.
Advancing LGBTI Rights on a Global Level
Across the globe, members of the LGBTI community continue to experience discrimination and numerous forms of abuse. While there has been substantial progress in the social acceptance of this diverse group over the last decade, a long path remains for public policy to actualize LGBTI equity, inclusion, and equal rights. For 30 years, OutRight Action International, an advocacy organization headquartered in New York, has countered attacks on free expression using the world’s biggest and most diverse forum—the United Nations.
Living Oceans Society Creates a Sea Change in British Columbia
The consequences of unsustainable global economic growth manifest in countless ways, one of the most obvious being the endless amount of solid waste littering our landscapes and washing up on our shores. In the case of a small village on the central coast of British Columbia in Canada, a community is thinking globally through its local actions and having an outsized impact through its example.
